House Van der Byl

The project brief called for the addition of a double garage, scullery and entertainment area to the existing dwelling. The existing garage, at the back of the property, will be converted to a gym and store room. The new double garage will be located on the street boundary and linked to the existing dwelling via a scullery/mud room which lead to a refurbished kitchen. The existing lounge and dining room will be extended with an entertainment area lead out to a shaded veranda and lap pool.

The proposed additions are envisaged as contemporary 'box' structures, contrasting the architectural language of the existing dwelling.
